TeamCard holders, including all season ticket holders, Silver members and Junior Blues were to be given exclusive viewings and opportunities to buy the new shirts, but screen shots from the club’s ‘Ipswich Player’ channel were acquired by the Football League’s official mobile phone app and published this morning.

Town’s Retail Manager, Lee Hyde, said: “It’s frustrating that a technical issue through no fault of our own has caused us to release the new kits ahead of schedule.

“We were made aware that the kits had been leaked online via Twitter and although frustrating, the feedback we have received from supporters has been very positive.

“So far the fans seem to really like the kit and it is great to see such a positive response.

“Lots of planning went into the scheduled launch evening on Friday at Planet Blue and we will still be going ahead with that, with TeamCard holders and Season Ticket holders having the first chance to purchase the new home shirt on the night of the event.”

The home kit will be available for all Ipswich fans to buy from the club store and the Ipswich Town stand at the Suffolk Show on May 29.
